Is theft O.K. sometimes?

If you believe in taxation, then you are in the yes camp.

It doesn't matter how good your intentions are for taxation. The bottom line, is you are taking money from people, by force if necessary, that they may not want to give you. They may not agree with your ideas of what it should be spent on. It is theft and from that foundation, you can fully expect a dysfunctional and criminal society.

I believe if people are allowed to keep the fruits of their labour, they will generally spend it much better than government ever could. They will create true free markets, where efficiency and quality win out. They will have more money to spend too and will be more likely to want to help their fellow man.

Britain and much of the world has gone horribly wrong. Until we sort out the foundations, we will never have a truly free and fair society.
